Last year (2016) the Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb was revamped beyond recognition for Lush’s Mother’s Day range. With it being completely unrecognisable to versions previously released, I was very excited to get hold of a few. The newly designed Rose Bombshell was a tremendously positive and much needed face lift, I loved it. I was therefore super happy when I found out that Lush had decided to bring it back for this years Valentine’s day range!
Changing from a plain white coloured product resembling Lush Oxford Street’s Ylang Song bath bomb to an almost neon pink one is always a good move in my personal pink-mad opinion. Not that I don’t love the Ylang Song bath bomb, I just tend to gravitate towards the pink products more because I’m pink obsessed.
Upon hitting the water the Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb immediately starts to fizz. It slowly changes your bath water to a crisp and pale pink.
As the Rose Bombshell slowly fizzes away its greenish blue interior begins to show. As this external layer of the bath bomb is gradually revealed the bath water becomes a deeper more vibrant pink.
Packed with rose absolute this bath bomb is a real treat for dull and tired skin. With the Rose Bombshell having both skin-soothing and moisturising properties, it is a bath bomb that you will want to use time and time again.
After getting out of this bath I could still smell the light floral and rose fragrance of Rose Bombshell on my skin. It wasn’t until I got out of the bath that I truly started to appreciate its fresh, beautiful and lingering scent.
Once this fantastically zingy-floral bath bomb reaches its last layer a handful of soft yellow rose petals burst out floating to the water surface. Like the Lovestruck bubble bar, Rose Bombshell also contains geranium oil, I am not a fan of geranium at all, Rose Bombshell’s other ingredients seem to however compliment it well making it a fragrance I do enjoy.
The multicoloured bubbles that Rose Bombshell left on the surface of the bath were so, so pretty. I just had to take a few more photos before I got into full bath mode.
Out of all of the seasonal, limited edition products that Lush threw at us last year (2016) this limited edition bath bomb was one of my favourites by far.
I have said several times in previous reviews that some of the limited edition products such as Rose Bombshell would make a fantastic addition to the staple, every day store products. A year on and I still feel that Rose Bombshell is worthy of that.
It really is a remarkably refreshing bath bomb that I feel I will never, ever get tired of.
